Brentford v Newcastle team news

Brentford: Former Newcastle youngster Ivan Toney is excelling with the Bees and will hope to prove a point against the side who let him leave.

Pontus Jansson, Shandon Baptiste and Mads Roerslev Rasmussen are all out with injuries, though Ethan Pinnock will return from a suspension and Christian Norgaard is back in the fold following a long absence.

Newcastle: Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin have been confirmed to have suffered from COVID-19. Bruce has spoken of 'long COVID' symptoms affecting their fitness. They will not feature.

Martin Dubravka and Federico Fernandez are out through injury.

Our prediction: Brentford v Newcastle

Toney could well prove to be the difference-maker here. He has notched 15 goals in 18 games in the league this season and is comfortably the most prolific striker between the two teams.

Newcastle may be forced to make a few changes to their side due to a combination of fixture congestion and existing injuries and COVID-19 issues.

Brentford have nothing to lose and will go into this encounter without fear. Forget the few places between them in the football pyramid, the Bees have momentum going into this one and could dispatch the Magpies.

Our prediction: Brentford 2-1 Newcastle
